Natural Disaster Emergency Preparedness

Winter Storms

Even areas that normally experience mild winters can be hit with a major snow and/or ice storm.  Winter storms can result in flooding, closed highways, blocked roads, downed power lines and hypothermia.

Taking preventive action is your best defense against having to deal with extreme cold-weather conditions. By preparing your home and car in advance for winter emergencies, and by observing safety precautions during times of extremely cold weather, you can reduce the risk of weather-related health problems.
